It is all up there now but it was a pain coaxing Moodle to import it in one gulp. It didn't like apostraphes of a certain style and a few bits of [not so] plain text.
Is there a particular encoding that is best for Moodle to take it in (ANSI, unicode ??) and is there a concise fact sheet (or good folks that might know) that can inform which characters should be stripped (with find/replace) to clean the text before import?
